Recomposition, sound performance and improvisation based on the music of Clara Schuman

Progress? Status quo? Or a step backwards?  #bechange: Thinking, the third program in the Stegreif Orchestra's #bechange series, tells of times of departure and deceleration and asks about the value of omnipresent innovation.  How is life in the age of "higher, faster, further" and can sustainable technologies also create socially sustainable structures?  The times of Clara Schumann (1819-1896) were permeated with change: social upheavals side by side with technological achievements. A pianist, composer, mother, concert promoter and teacher, Clara Schumann is a formative figure in today's complex world.

The recompositions of Helena Weinstock-Montag draw on the musical material of Clara Schumann, such as the Piano Romance op.21, No.1, arranged for large orchestra as well as parts of the Piano Concerto in A minor, songs and chamber music works.  Directed by David Fernández, Stegreif – The Improvising Symphony Orchestra once again sets itself the task of uniting classical works and contemporary musical forms and bringing them into an interplay with improvised elements.  As with all impromptu concerts, the audience is a central part of the concert and is invited to give their own perspective on the issues of our time.
